the goal is to love myself so much it offends other people
-high pitch screaming-
probably my favorite part of elephants is the fact that you’re literally seeing one of few species that not only is probably on par with human sentience/intelligence, but also ages, matures and has proven itself to have a fairly similar growing up process as humans.
So like, we see this largeish gamboling elephant baby, but you’re basically looking at a giant toddler.
the babies!!!! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!
This is what British television looks like.
I love how the penguin just recognises Noel Fielding as a fellow monochrome being and waddles straight over to him.
FELLOW MONOCHROME BEING
Wendy’s is doing the same thing.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.
I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.
No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.
Proof: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/04/editorial-how-to-buy-mcdonalds-ponies.html <— this was posted on the net’s biggest brony hive on April 10, 2014. So yeah, this is sadly not about anything else but how awful bronies are, sorry.
Bronies ruin everything.
So the outcome SEEMS like it’s gender neutral, while the ACTION is actually male (Brony) as the default (customer). I just… I will never get this Broni thing? Ok? Never. I wasn’t a MLP girl as a child, but this thing makes it hard to even get INTO it now.
And just brings up a thing I saw the other day - where someone was wishing AppleJack and Rainbowdash could be made to act and appear ”more feminine’.
… Yeah. Not even my fandom and I’M all WTF?!
I can’t even.
A few months ago, I’d have tried to ‘feel’ it by imagining if Fedoras took over She-Ra or JEM. But then, Fedoras actually took over JEM so - yeah.
I am never going to be ok with Bronies and here’s why. The first time I met my boyfriend’s nieces, I was chatting with their mom and I noticed that they are all in love with MLP. And I mentioned the movie and she said they went once, but she decided not to take them again because the first time there had been too many adult men without children in the audience.
So, the reason I’m not ok with it is that adult men have taken over a space intended for young girls. And they’ve done so in a way that makes that space no longer safe for young girls.
on a scale of 1950s housewife to whatever you’d call the opposite of a 1950s housewife
